Turkey said Tuesday that Iraqis have nothing to fear from the filling of an upstream reservoir on the Tigris River, saying "sufficient quantities of water" would continue to flow to the neighboring country.Hassan al-Janabi told Al-Sumaria TV on Sunday that there had been an "unfair and organized defamation campaign to spread panic among Iraqis".He said Iraq and Turkey reached a "fair" agreement whereby Turkey will release 75 percent of the river's volume while keeping the rest to fill the dam over the next six months.
